For such a tiny human, Lion's Sunny Pawar sure has a lot of fans. The 8-year-old looked oh-so-dapper in his mini tuxedo Sunday (February 26) at the Oscars, where the film was nominated for Best Picture. It didn't win, but Pawar stole the hearts of both the celebs there and everyone watching at home.
Why? Well, the adorable encounters with all these celebs from Sunday night (and from previous star-studded events) speak for themselves.
The evening's host may or not have seen Lion, but he figured hoisting Sunny up like The Lion King's Simba was close enough.
